Ai-Ai Delas Alas took to social media to mourn the death of Jun De Dios, whom she called Boss Wowie, and pay tribute to the person that the comedienne said discovered her.
The comedienne-actress said that the cause of death of her Boss Wowie, also known to many as Daddy Wowie, was COVID-19.
“Sobrang nalulungkot ako. Sya ang mahal kong boss kung hindi nya ko kinuha na sing along master sa music box hindi sana ko si Ai-ai ngayun,” the actress wrote in her post.
De Dios, known to many who frequent sing-along joints as Daddy Wowie, is the manager of Music Box. He discovered Ai-Ai and hired her to be a sing-along master at the sing-along bar.

Before she became known as a comedy queen, Ai-Ai worked as a saleslady, and later on as secretary of Bulwagang Gantimpala.
She, along with Arnell Ignacio, were discovered by De Dios in a comedy bar and they later on became regular performers at the Music Box.
“Salamat at ikaw ang unang naniwala samen ni Arnell Ignacio boss. Pahinga ka na. 'Till we meet again. I love you,” Ai-Ai said.

Martina Eileen Hernandez delas Alas-Sibayan, better known as Ai-Ai Delas Alas, is a Filipina film and television actress-comedienne. She was born on November 11, 1964 and first gained nationwide recognition for her film Ang Tanging Ina, which became a blockbuster hit. Due to the film's popularity, a television series spin-off was produced, as well as three sequels: Ang Tanging Ina N'yong Lahat, Ang Tanging Ina Mo (Last na 'To!) and Enteng ng Ina Mo, with Ai-Ai reprising her role. She also appeared in the comedy film Our Mighty Yaya, which premiered on May 10, 2017, through Regal Entertainment.
About a month ago, Ai-Ai flexed the recent achievement of her husband, Gerald Sibayan. She shared that Gerald has bought a new Mercedes Benz car as a gift to himself. The star shared that Gerald has been working hard on his presentations to franchisees of Siomai King. Finally, she thanked God for helping her husband achieve success and reach his goals.
It was not all rosy for the actress-comedienne, however, as she also had her share of bashers. Also a month ago, Ai-Ai fired back at a netizen who had a negative remark about her face. She received the criticism after she shared on her Instagram page a TikTok video of her. In the video, the comedienne used a filter to make her face look distorted and funny. Although most of the commenters find her video funny, one basher aired unsolicited comment on Ai-Ai’s post.
